Cellecta Driver-Map Human Genome-Wide Expression Profiling Service

Cellecta has launched the Driver-Map human genome-wide expression profiling service, a targeted RNA expression method that enables quantitative expression analysis of all known 19,000 protein-coding genes in the human genome from as little as 10 pg of total RNA.

The method uses multiplexed RT-PCR directly from total RNA followed by next-generation sequencing, and employs a robust single-tube protocol with features that are particularly suitable to complex applications such as large-scale biomarker discovery and tumor microenvironment characterization. Cellecta noted that the method uses an optimized primer set that yields 1,000- to 10,000-fold dynamic range.
